Internet Protocol Version 4, or IPv4, is the current, widely-deployed version of the Internet Protocol and is slowly running out of addresses to assign. Its successor, IPv6, allows greater flexibility in assigning IP addresses due to a deeper address space. Windows Server 2008 installs and enables IPv6 by default, including Windows 2008 DHCP by way of DHCPv6. This course provides an overview of networks, hosts, subnet masks, and how subnetting plays a role in efficient network management. It explores some of the more advanced points of network management including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, static and dynamic DHCP, and the configuration of various DHCP options. This course is one in a series that covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-642 TS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring. Passing this exam completes the requirements for the MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring certification, and counts as credit towards the following certifications: Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Enterprise Administrator, and the Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Server Administrator, since both MCITPs are certifications that require more than one exam.


Configuring IP Addressing

  • distinguish between IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
  • recognize the technologies used to transition to IPv6
  • identify the subnet masks of host networks
  • calculate the subnet mask for a classless CIDR network
  • distinguish between the methods available to assign IP addresses
  • configure IPv4 addressing
  • configure IPv6 addressing
  • configure IPv4 and IPv6 addressing

Configuring Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

  • configure a DHCP server
  • use commands to administer DHCP on Server Core
  • configure IPv4 addressing on a DHCP server
